Well, it didn't turn out quite like I expected, but we had fun! Third graders learned that in Surrealism, artists put together objects that didn't belong together (juxtaposition), put things in places they didn't usually belong (dislocation), and metamorphosed objects (transformation).
They used these methods to make surreal food for our "Salvador Deli". Somehow, it seems a lot of the food has either sprouted wheels or been enhanced by eyeballs.
Come join us at the Salvador Deli, where your food may stare back at you, or even walk, fly, or drive away! I've suggested that maybe the cafeteria ought to have a surreal lunch day, and serve some unusually transformed food, but I'm not sure they want to give it a try. Maybe they're worried nobody will have the nerve to actually eat the surreal food!
